New issue! 2G N.68 Christ & Gantenbein

2g68_wd_home

Emanuel Christ and Christoph Gantenbein belong to a generation of architects who started their studio at the end of the 1990s and began to build during the turn-of-the-century boom. In their work, the powerful Swiss tradition (both with regard to the use of typologies as well as materials) is enriched thanks to new geographic, economic and technical possibilities. Their work encompasses small domestic interventions (such as the enlargement of a mansion in Harlesheim or a garden pavilion in Basel), passing through various residential and office buildings, until reaching two important interventions in national museums: the Landesmuseum of Zúrich and the Kuntsmuseum of Basel.
